Mini might not be on Apple's product listing anymore but it's still very
hot. Whoa this is pretty cool, an upstart company plans to bring HD

The Internet, Round 2, is now under way. Again, the computing terrain is
changing remarkably, helped along by free software like Linux and the spread

be delivered as services over the Internet, often free and supported by advertising.
Clever Internet software can now turn flat, view-and-read Web pages into snappy
services that look and respond to a user's keystrokes much like the big software
applications that reside on a PC hard drive. New companies are even sprouting
up to offer Web-based word processors and spreadsheets, products long regarded
as mature--and long dominated by Microsoft's desktop programs.
